Slow Roasted Country Ribs

      The cool fall weather has arrived in my neck of the woods and it's time to start thinking about hearty dutch oven meals.  This recipe for Slow Roasted Country Ribs from Mr. Food is just about one of the easiest dinners you'll ever make.  I decided to bake them in my 10 inch Camp Chef Yosemite Deluxe Dutch Oven.  I picked it up for a song last winter online and what I like about it is the extra height it gives you with the deeper lid, perfect for roasting the ribs or cooking stuffed peppers.  I started out with 10 coals in a ring around the base of the oven and covered the lid with around 24 coals, I didn't even peek under the lid, in 1 hour and 30 minutes the onions were soft and the ribs were beautifully browned. You can also make these in your crock pot, cook them for 8 hours on low.  Very tender and juicy but not overly spicy, serve them with a big spoonful of brown mustard to boost the flavor.

  1. Oh my - TERRIFIC! So different from all the reg BBQ ribs. We absolutely LOVED these, Maybe some mushrooms? But then everything needs more mushrooms. Try it, we loved it! Going on my "A" list!!!

  2. Thank you for your feedback Bob, so glad you enjoyed the ribs and mushrooms sound like a great addition! Liddy
